Following an explanation of cost-effective studies and the need for them in libraries, part one of this report provides step-by-step instructions, with examples, to enable librarians to conduct such studies in their own setting.

Part two provides an example of the use of the model, presenting the results of the cost analysis of monographic cataloging of new materials in the libraries of Author: Brice G. Hobrock. The perception that library book sales result in a net profit has not been examined systematically.

Real and hidden costs are involved in book sales, including the opportunity cost of preventing staff from performing normal work.

Cost–benefit analysis is applied to models of library book sales of several types: annual, on-going, and by: 3. For these libraries, the cost of copy cataloging was used in finding the average costs of 34 libraries.

Other libraries gave a range of figures; with these, the author used the lower figure. For libraries that gave one figure for both monographs and serials into one figure, the highest figure was $ and the lowest was $ Measuring Your Library's Value, designed to serve large to medium sized public libraries, gives librarians the tools to conduct a defensible and credible cost-benefit analysis (CBA).
